Nonsleeping AJ

We're back to AJ not sleeping. I don't get it. We were doing soooo good. Ever since we got back from the river house we've been having problems. Maybe it's because I slept in the same bed with him all weekend and he got used to sleeping with me that quickly? I don't know....all I do know is that it's painful, literally.

The witching hour seems to be between 2am and 4am. I go into his room and determine if it's going to be a quick, lay him back down, recover him and go back to bed OR is it going to be one of those nights where I sleep on his floor until he falls back to sleep. Lately, it's been the latter. But now he wants to lay with me AND he doesn't just snuggle up and go back to sleep like he used to. Now he's up. He's restless, he tosses and turns, he babbles. Meanwhile, I'm still trying to sleep. I try to snuggle but eventually my arm falls asleep and I'm back to having shoulder/hips pains - if you've ever been pregnant you know what that feels like. And God forbid if I turn around to lay on my other side to get some relief. No way! The little beetle has to come with me. So of course that disturbs any progress he's made in falling asleep. And the pain doesn't stop there. In between the shoulder/hips pains and my arms falling asleep, I'm dodging head butts. My boy has a big head and those suckers HURT!

So, nothing hugely important today, just bewilderment as to why my little head-butting fart has to wake up at 2am and disturb my beauty sleep. Which he totally is. I have yet to wake up at 5:30am so that I can work out and get my super sexy body ;)

Um, today we woke up at 8am.

Tot used to be the same way. Whenever we would vacation, we knew that we were in for at least a week of sleeping drama, including the head butting and perpendicular sleeping.
Little suckers, if only they knew how awesome sleep really is!
